7 Days to Die was a huge success in the early access period and received recognition on Valve’s All-Time Top 100 Bestsellers and Best of 2019 Most Played Games lists.
Given the number of patches received by the game since its launch, it’s not surprising that the community has been strong.
Modding is an excellent way to add to the base game’s already great features. How do you start?
This is our list of 7 days to die mods that are worth installing, regardless if you’re new or returning to the title.
12. Friendly Animal
This 7 days to die mod by Swiftpaw allows animals to be more than just guns, knives, and bows.
Friendly Animals is a lot easier than the previous one. To help zads, all you need to do is to run to a friend.
The mod can be used on coyotes and dire wolves as well as mountain lions and bears. All of these animals would, I believe, be extremely effective in mauling zombies.
Your animal friends are also invincible, so they can be great at tanking larger hordes.
Mayic’s Weaponry mod aims to change the way we experience weapons in 7 Days to Die. It changes some mechanics (at least when it involves weapon crafting and weapon-related looting).
Let me try to simplify it: Each weapon with the mod installed will have a counterpart capable of supporting either 22Lr/9x19mm round.
This makes it much easier to manage the various ammo types available in the game.
You can also reverse engineer each 22Lr/9x19mm weapon once you have it. This allows you to learn how to make each weapon.
This is where things get really crazy.
A crafting recipe can be used to create any weapon. You can adjust everything from range, fire rate, and recoil to meet your specific needs.
10. Medieval Mod
This is one of the most unique changes to the game. It takes a totally different approach to personalize your 7 Days to Die experience.
As you may have guessed, this Medieval Mod takes you to another time period.
“Enter the world of Orcs and Goblins… Ride a horse in the picturesque countryside or explore the haunted forests… travel north to the Orc Lands or the eerie crystal biome.
Starvation, another interesting 7 days to die mods, focuses on survival. Starvation is similar to War of the Walkers. It offers loads of new content, including new locations, weapons, and enemies. This one is different because of the additional survival elements that make it more difficult.

The UI has been updated to a Fallout-inspired theme for the post-apocalyptic theme. However, nothing else will change. The new items are the only change.
This mod is great for anyone who likes a semi-vanilla feel.
The mod includes over 700 new items including consumables, weapons, and armor.
6. Darkness Falls
Darkness Falls, another 7 Days to Die mods that is very popular, aims to make it a little more difficult.It works in this way: It works by extending the survival efforts, allowing you to access iron and steel later in the process.

2. True Survival

First, you will be presented with a completely new trait system. This will allow you to personalize your character’s attributes.
You can then choose from 16 different professions that will determine your starting recipe and bonus. This is basically a job-style system.
